Hawaii Weather June Averages, USA
What's the weather like in Hawaii in June
June is considered one of the peak summer months in Hawaii, offering plenty of warm weather for anyone who visits.
In the peak of the day, the thermometer can reach an average high temperature of 28°C, which is just one degree lower than the warmest months of the year. However, unlike the previous month of May, there are times when the trade winds that keep the air temperature cooler will stop and change direction. This does bring with it the chance of some more humid weather and the threat of hurricanes.
Though there hasn't been a significant hurricane on Hawaii in more than a decade, the chance of rain in June is slightly higher than in May. However it is still considered the third driest month of the year.
On average, only 43mm of rain will fall throughout the entire month of June. And while most will fall on the higher regions or in the rain forests, even if rain does fall in more low lying areas, it is most likely to do so at night. This makes the area beautifully luscious during the day and a wonderful time to be in Hawaii.
Throughout June, expect an average of 11 hours of daily sunshine, with sea temperatures of 26°C which ensure everyone wants to hit the water.
The sea is calmer at this time of the year, which means avid surfers may find areas of the south and west a little too flat for their liking. However, all through the year, the rougher seas on the north and east coasts of each island will usually offer some very challenging swells.
Average temperatures throughout June move a little closer to the peak summer months, offering a general climate of 26°C. And even at night, average lows are usually no less than 23°C ensuring everyone can enjoy a little alfresco dining.

Hawaii Beaches in June
Hapuna Beach on the Big Island's Kohala Coast has something for everyone. When the seas are calm it offers a picture perfect location for sunbathing, snorkelling and simply having fun. But when the waves come, three foot high swells provide entertainment for surfers of any level. The beach is patrolled with registered life guards and an onsite café offers all the refreshments required. Bring your own food and use the barbeque facilities. Shower and washing up amenities are also available for everyone. There is a small fee to use the onsite carpark, but even that can't stop anyone having a fabulous day at Hapuna.
Bonzai Beach on Oahu is home to some of the gnarliest tubes in Hawaii, and possibly anywhere in the world, so it's not a site for amateur surfers. But for those that want to be challenged by the waves, this little hotspot on the coast of Oahu is a definite must. Also known as the 'Pipe' simply because of the splendour of its surfing tubes, even if you haven't the skill to get into the water, just sitting and watching the experts at work is always a thrill. But with thick, white sand and lots of bars and restaurants to entertain, even those that have never ridden a wave in their life have no chance of being bored.
Bars and Restaurants
The Aloha 'n Paradise Espresso Bar is a nice place to sit back and relax on Kauai. Combining local art with great tasting coffee, it offers the perfect induction into local talent and fabulous flavours.

It's a great place to meet friends during the day or sit back and relax on the way to Waimea Canyon. At any time, the friendly staff will make this the best cup of coffee you have ever had.
A touch of the Irish has come to Maui, and it's all courtesy of the Dog & Duck. Traditional drinks, authentic Irish food and great prices mean this place is always popular, especially as the island gets busy in June. In the day, catch up with the sport back home on their multiple TV screens. In the evening the entertainment can be anything from a laugh a minute quiz night to a live band.

With friendly staff and a very warm atmosphere, everyone is welcome at the Dog & Duck.
Even if you're not a fan of Poke, you will be completely converted at Ono Seafood. Situated in the heart of Honolulu, this restaurant combines eastern flavours and Hawaiian freshness to create a feast for the senses for anyone who chooses to visit. The menu is limited to a small number of items, but the things they do cook, they cook really well. From octopus to tuna and freshly caught fish. There's no booking, so you will have to queue out in the June sun to be seated. But when you get to try the food, you won't be able to wait to come back for more.
